While there will always be a place in our hearts for solids and minimalism, patterns are all the rage in 2013. Whether you're into bold, lively, colorful patterns or prefer to accent your neutrals with a few classic favorites, there's a trendy 2013 pattern that we suspect would go beautifully in your kitchen design.
A particularly gender-neutral alternative to the more ornate damask pattern, quatrefoil has a history in Christian architecture as well as Celtic tradition. The quatrefoil four leaves have traditionally symbolized the Bible's four gospels, but this year, the design is making a modern and secular comeback. Incorporate quatrefoil in your kitchen backsplash or wall art.
Stripes are back, and they are returning with full-force color, texture and wow factor. You can opt for bold stripes of various widths, or go for a more classic black and white look. We recommend using stripes on an accent wall, as too much of a good thing can be a bit overpowering.
This isn't your grandma's floral wallpaper. Floral prints have taken the interior design world by storm in recent years, and have completely upped the ante in terms of wall design. Funky floral wallpaper will look fabulous in your kitchen, and can add an artsy and eclectic vibe to vintage or classic design schemes.
